Visiting us

Visiting our beautiful campuses and speaking to our academic staff and current postgraduate students is the best way to find out about studying for a Masters degree or a PhD with the University of Exeter.

Postgraduate Open Days

Our Postgraduate Open Days are much smaller-scale events than our large Undergraduate Open Days, and they offer fantastic opportunities to speak to our academics and current postgraduate students one-to-one so that you can find out more about our individual programmes, about scholarships and funding, and experience our campuses and facilities first-hand.

Undergraduate Open Days

You are welcome to come and talk to us about postgraduate study at our Streatham Undergraduate Open Days, too; we have a stand where you can talk to our postgraduate students, pick up a prospectus, and find out about postgraduate funding. Our stand is normally in the Academic Fair in the Great Hall. All of the other events and services on the day are as open to potential postgraduates as they are potential undergraduates, but keep in mind that they may not all be relevant.

You can also pick up a postgraduate prospectus and ask our Admissions staff about our courses and funding at our Penryn Undergraduate Open Days.

Our next Streatham Undergraduate Open Days are on Friday 2 and Saturday 3 June, Saturday 2 September and Wednesday 25 October 2017

Our next Penryn Undergraduate Open Days are on Saturday 10 June 2017, and Saturday 23 September 2017.
